Film Theory: Dear Sonic, You SUCK at Running!

Never Miss A Film Theory! ►
The new Sonic movie is FULL of hidden gems, the most important of which has to be how ADORABLE the redesign of Sonic ended up. That's not the point of this theory, though. No, today I am focusing on one key detail from the movie - Sonic's shoes. Specifically, the fact that Sonic seems to keep ruining them. You see, this detail says something VERY important about the way Sonic runs. What is that? Watch and find out!

    It really doesn’t matter to really how he runs I guess cause me and my younger brother always get holes in our shoes and 99% if the time it’s in the FRONT of our shoes and we both run normally with a heel strike. So I don’t really believe he’s running wrong or that it just really doesn’t matter. -Carter.

    Watch kipchoge’s foot strike in slow motion, and reply to this comment that elite marathon runners are heel striking. Actually the vapor fly promotes forefoot striking 😅 look at the placement of hard wearing rubber compound 😅 The reason why there’s a curve at the back of a nike shoes 1. Aerodynamics 2. Signature design (to stand out from the competition)

    this video is soooo wrong if sonic is a sprinter he will automatically run using the toe running technique. look at any track and field competition spike the spikes, which gives you traction, are on the front of the shoe. also the marathon wr record is unofficial because it used pacers and a pace car to keep athletes on pace to go sub 2 hours. im sorry but as a track athlete myself i need to throw in my opinion on this.

    Actually his running makes sense as a distance runner myself we are told to run around where he is running heel running slows you down while it may be better for slower long distance running heel running actively slows you down if you look at Eliud Kipchoge's running form he runs on the front of his feet and his heel barely touches the ground so while his heel would wear down the thinner padding combined with the extra pressure he would wear down the front a lot faster.

    When it comes to landing any kind of airborne activity, whether it be running or jumping, most dancers would always say to land with your toes first and then roll through your foot. Otherwise, you are just jamming all your body weight into the ground at the same time. Going toe, ball, heel is our natural cushion.

    Lego Brick Planetپیش 12 روز

    Here’s a good explanation to why sonic’s socks are worn out at the back and why his shoes are worn out from the front! So when Sonic first came to earth, he had little boots that fit his age, over the 10 years it’s been since he came to earth, he ditched the small shoes and found the socks, but not shoes that fit. So he was heel striking with the socks on because he found it was comfortable running like that with the socks on,before he got the shoes, then he found that forefoot striking was better so he started forefoot striking! It seems reasonable that this is why the socks are worn out from the back and why the shoes are worn out from the front!

    The shoes are worn that way not from how he runs, but how he stops. When stopping, all the weight is redistributed to the front with a ton of friction from him stopping, that’s why the shoes wear that way 🤷‍♂️
